Educators Rising Idaho
What is Educators Rising Idaho?
Building on a tradition of excellence, the College of Education at Idaho State University works continuously to improve education. By facilitating chapters of Educators Rising (EdRising), a national organization for high school students interested in education careers, we continue that tradition throughout Idaho. By elevating the perception of teaching, Educators Rising and Idaho State University seeks to attract dynamic and diverse students from across Idaho who will become tomorrow’s great educators. Our mission is to foster the recruitment and development of prospective educators by strengthening relationships and disseminating innovative programming.
Educators Rising is a national network of more than 43,000 students and teacher/mentor participants in school-based, grow-your-own teacher programs. The mission of this organization is to cultivate highly-skilled educators by guiding young people on a path to becoming accomplished teachers, beginning in high school and extending through college and into the profession. Teacher recruitment and preparation are community-based issues and EdRising offers a self-sustaining development model that empowers local teacher leaders.
Educators Rising is transforming how America develops aspiring teachers. Starting with high school students, we provide passionate young people with hands-on teaching experiences, sustain their interest in the profession, and help them cultivate the skills they need to become successful educators. The result is a pipeline of accomplished teachers positioned to make a lasting difference — not only in the lives of their students, but also in the field of teaching. Every teacher should enter the profession with the necessary skills. Educators Rising is a powerful way to help communities grow the next generation of well-prepared teachers.
